Ashford Photographic Society is a well established and friendly club that caters for photographers of all abilities and interests, embracing all forms of photography, from darkroom to digital.
One of the major appeals of photography is that we never stop learning; be it from listening to other photographers talk about their work and how they approach it, or by having others comment on our photography. Our programme is arranged with this in mind and we invite both speakers and judges to keep things fresh and fair.
You also get the opportunity to network with like-minded people and there is always another member only to willing to help you out with any questions that you have.
Workshops and social activities
In addition to our regular Friday night sessions, we run a series of workshops, covering topics such as: mounting prints, basic and advanced camera skills and image processing in Lightroom and Photoshop. We organise a number of club outings too.
Where we meet
We meet every Friday evening at 7.15PM for a 7.45PM start, from early September until mid May at Givaudan Sports and Social Club.
